### TRP-Sieve ending soon (again!)

It took longer than we anticipated, but we're moving forward now with our plans to complete the TRP-Sieve. Our rough estimate is that it will take about a month or two to reach optimal sieving depth.
I suspect most folks already did their "final badge hunting" when we first announced this back in August and September, but if you want to push for that next TRP-Sieve badge, now is the time to do it!
More details and discussion can be found in this forum thread.

### Draining the CMS job queue

Because of an upgrade to the WMAgent server, we need to drain the CMS job queue. So, I'm not submitting any more batches at present and we should start running out over the weekend. If you see that you are not getting any CMS jobs (not tasks...) please set No New Jobs or stop BOINC.

I expect that the intervention will take place Monday morning, and hopefully we'll have new jobs again later that day.
